Workplace Experience

Charleston High School offers many opportunities for students to learn college and/or career-ready skills within the community. Our workplace experience programs, such as Internship and Cooperative Education are expanding and it is our hope that every CHS student, prior to graduating, will have gained valuable work experience.

The chart below provides an overview of each program. Students are encouraged to discuss their future course schedules with their guidance counselor prior to applying for either program.

If your business is interested in hosting a student intern or hiring a part-time student worker, please contact our CTE Specialist, Angie Niebrugge, at (217) 639-5100 or send a message.
